A massive turn out at CHRW 2021 of 386 boats from 65 clubs across the UK that 600 competitors were treated to five days of exhilarating sailing from 9th August.
Monday saw the strongest winds of 17 gusting 22 knots, with it easing on Tuesday and then the prevailing south westerlies built again for the end of the week to 15 knots gusting 18 which enabled the race officers to lay challenging courses for the 20 fleets of boats. The Federation’s experienced race officers were Greg Wells (Series A), David Nicholls (Series B) and Pam Marrs (Series C), assisted by their mark-laying and safety teams, whilst ashore an army of volunteers kept the whole event moving, all under the watchful eye of PRO Robert Macdonald.
On Friday night the prize winners were treated to a special guest appearance by Eilidh McIntyre, HISC’s newest Olympian who won gold in the Women’s 470 event in Tokyo.
Full details of competitors and results are available here.
The Chichester Harbour Federation would like thank our hosts, Hayling Island Sailing Club, their commodore Andy Partington, Club Officers, their charming and delightful team and, of course, their members who as usual proved to be helpful and welcoming to their visitors.
HISC are celebrating 100 years and the Federation wish them a long a prosperous future.
